inside syria? >> they have erased the border between syria and iraq. they control a piece of land that you have shown accurately on television many times. we should not recognize that border. it doesn't exist. we should certainly conduct a limited and selected air campaign against targets that we're able to acquire in syria and iraq. >> quick final question. people talk about air strikes and changing of someone in central government, it makes me think of libya. that's a recent example of where we saw air strikes being used. what prevents iraq from not be libya now is total chaos as you know and terrorists are operating freely within that country. >> two problems with libya. first, on military use of air strikes in libya we found ourselves in a military stalemate because we didn't put air traffic controllers in with militia to have effective air strikes and we didn't follow-up with security needs that libya wanted to strengthen their security forces. we walked away. we got benghazi as a result of it and we have chaos as you just accurately described. >> interesting. lessons perhaps from

in the new yorker magazine. the modern iraqi state may not hold. neighboring syria is already shattered. the middle east map may be withdrawn. globally, the jihadist threat has never been greater. all of those artificial states created after world war i, we're going to see a redivision as we saw, for example, in yugoslavia, when that was broken up into six or seven independent states? >> we certainly face that possibility. it's not yet a probability, but it's one of the long-term consequences of both the conflicts in syria and iraq. you're seeing the border, as you know, well being erased, with isis having a force on both sides. and the possible creation a kind of sunni-stan that brings together both of those countries. but we're not there yet. that's why the political solution is the only way to prevent both countries from falling apart. >> back in 2006, joe biden as a u.s. senator, he was already speculating seriously about breaking up iraq into three autonomous divisions, regions, if you will. robin, thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> up next, protests erupt in the west

ultimately the united states. we have already seen inside of syria that groups like isil that right now are fighting with other extremist groups or an assad regime that was nonresponsive to sunni majority there, that that has attracted more and more jihadists or would-be jihadists, some of them from europe. they then start traveling back to europe, and that, over time, can create a cadre of terrorists that could harm us. so we have humanitarian interests in preventing bloodsh bloodshed. we have strategic interests in stability in the region. all those have to be addressed. the national effort for us to get situational awareness through, you know, the reconnaissance and surveillance that we've already done coupled with some of our best people on the ground doing assessments of exactly what the situation is, starting, by the way, with the perimeter around baghdad and making sure that's not overrun. that's a good investment for us to make. but that does not foreshadow a larger commitment of troops to actually fight in iraq. that would not be effective in meeting the core interests that
